Rimmel ~ Urban Purple
Deep berry/burgundy crème
L. A. Splash ~ Cupid
Clear base with pink microglitter and pink hearts
I like Rimmel’s polishes as base colours. The ones I’ve got are all pretty pigmented and cover well. Urban Purple is no exception. I don’t know why they call it purple, ‘cause it’s definitely not. It’s a deep berry, which is just as pretty on the nails as in the bottle. It almost covers in one coat. I gave it two anyway, because I only wanted to add the sparse glitter on top of it.
Here’s what two coats and no top coat looks like:
Isn’t that just the perfect base for something else? :)
I used my white Claire’s striper and made to random parallel lines on each nail. I didn’t try to make them look the same, and this is what it ended up looking like:
Then I added the glitter. It’s the first time I try this L. A. Splash glitter with hearts, and I could tell that I had to go fishing for the hearts just by looking at the bottle. And that’s exactly what I had to do. I fished one heart up for each nail and dabbed it around until it fitted the pattern with the lines.
The polish is fairly thick, but manageable. I’m not quite sure it’s a keeper yet though. Perhaps it’ll end in my swap stash, who knows!
After the glitter had dried, I applied a generous coat of Poshé top coat, and I was done. Here’s the final mani:
And from another angle:
